This is what people can know if they find your IP address:
Your internet service provider you're using.
Your city or general area. (depends on how your ISP labels/runs your internet connection)
If you are connecting with a static IP they even may be able to determine what business you're connecting from and if you have a static IP they will know how to get to your computer/router every time it's online unless your computer/router is protected with firewall/smart security settings to not respond to any incoming requests.
In addition to this personal information if they are hackers or using tools they can:
Try to scan your computer/router for openings to hack.
Try to use computer attacks to manipulate, overthrow, or incapacitate your computer/router.
Try to use deception to infect your computer with malicious software.
See for yourself, your own IP: http://whatismyipaddress.com/
Also check on the "hiding my IP" section about proxies and VPNs....
Also read about changing your IP: http://whatismyipaddress.com/change-ip
IF YOU DONT USE PROXY OR VPN, EVERY WEBSITE YOU CONNECT TO, OR SERVICE YOU USE, HAS YOUR IP ADDRESS!!!!
IF YOU DO USE A PROXY ONLY THE PROXY SERVICE YOU USE HAS YOUR IP ADDRESS!!!
USING A VPN, you connect to another computer using encrypted tunnel..... you know use that computer as if you were sitting at it.... so any website you goto through VPN, looks like you are coming from that individual computer.
VPNs are useful when sites block PROXY connections or refuse service based on PROXY!!! But you need a trusted partner to VPN with..... because whoever you VPN with, will also have your IP ADDRESS! DO NOT GET YOUR VPN PARTNER IN TROUBLE BY DOING ILLEGAL/RISKY THINGS USING THEIR COMPUTER!!!!
Note: if you try to use an IP website to check your own IP, and you are using PROXY or VPN, you will instead get the IP of your PROXY or VPN, and not your own IP.
